Our Bblep09 e-portfolios

Here's the place to write about one of your e-peers' portfolio. You can use the following questions to help you do so:

1. Is the e-portfolio portal following the suggestions given in the video tutorial?
  • one-single entry
  • has got the different parts suggested (Welcome; About us; project description; schedule; structure; evaluation; resources)
2. Does the e-portfolio have got a blogroll?

3. Any other comment?

My e-peer’s blog-based lesson site

Here you will write about one of your e-peer's blogs. While browsing his/her blog think about this:
  1. Does it clearly show the different stages of a web-based lesson (Pre-task / Task / Post-task)?
  2. Is it easy to navigate in the blog?
  3. What do you think about the content, the websites, tasks?
  4. Any other comment?

In our sessions we suggest the use of e-portfolios to keep track of the activities your students do in their blogs. Also, e-portfolios can be used to make them reflect on their very own learning after working on each lesson.
Now after reading this article on e-portfolios, write a post on your thoughts about e-portfolios in language learning. These questions may help you write your post:

  • Do you think an e-portfolio could have any “value added” to your web-based lesson?
  • What are the advantages? Any disadvantage?

My e-peer's web-based lesson plan

Here you will evaluate one of your e-peer's web-based lesson plan for his/her blog. Use the follwing questions to help you:

  1. Are all the aspects considered in the lesson plan?
  2. Is the procedure clearly described (Pre-tasks/tasks/post-tasks)?
  3. Are the websites related to the lesson topic?
  4. Any other comment:
  5. You will start designing your web-based lessons in week 4.

Note: Say the name of your e-peer and the topic chose for his/her lesson.

My Task-Based lesson sample

Choose one (or more) of the following-task based tasks: Listing and/or brainstorming, Ordering and sorting, Matching, Comparing: finding similarities and differences, Problem solving, Sharing personal experiences and story telling.

Now write your task-based activity for the topic you chose in week 2 for your pre-planning. Follow the examples in the readings suggested for any of these tasks.
